Last nights game against NC State left a lot to be desired.... I simply cannot understand how ponder was on the 4 yard line and fumbled the ball. I mean really?? Frustrating to say the least. We did what so often we have done in the past... get a good lead, get cocky and then give away points, then we make crucial mistakes like a fumble or an interception that cost us the game. I know these boys play their hearts out for us every week but man is it hard not to yell at the screen. ugh

Here's to next week

This is what we accomplished last night. The ability to stand and hold on to anything.... I guess my Halloween decor that was on our coffee table is safe no longer....

I don't think walking is far off in our future

Please note the spoiled rotten dogs in the back ground lounging on the sofa.. Hank especially, laying on my brand new pillows.. ugh

oh and the fact that my son is shirtless... we were having a little WT moment

Fall Fun

We have been so busy lately.. its hard to find the time to sit down and do a post! Our sweet boy is getting so big! I know I say it all the time but he grows and changes everyday. I feel like every time I turn around he's doing something new. Just this week he has mastered the art of pulling up and standing. He does it on just about anything he can, it makes me so nervous that he is going to fall backwards and hurt himself. But I guess that's just a part of it. Ever since he has started crawling bumps and bruises are happening more often. He lets out a high pitched scream when he has hurt himself and only wants mama or daddy. He lays his head on my shoulder and holds on real tight then when he feels better he lifts his little head up and gives me a big open mouth kiss. SO SWEET! He has the sweetest personality, such a lover.

In other big news, we have finally mastered the art of the sippy cup! He loves his water and juice now. He will sit there and jug the whole thing and then throw it on the floor when he's done with it... thanks buddy

He now crawls everywhere! This is him in the kitchen kissing his reflection in the dishwasher

He then will back up and pat pat his reflection.. ha ha

First time in a park swing. He loved it!! We are going to put a swing on our back porch this weekend so he can swing when ever he wants

Such a big boy!! The other day my mother and I were out to lunch and I was showing her how if you ask him where someone is he will look all around for them. Well I asked him where Daddy was.. he looked around and then looked at me and said "daddy"! Not Dada or anything else but Daddy! My mom looked at me and said oh my gosh he just said Daddy clear as day! Of course I called Gary and told him. It made him so happy, he told everyone he saw that day.

We love you sweet boy!

8 Months

Where have these 8 months gone???
Our sweet baby is growing into such an adorable and loving little boy...with a wild streak(courtesy of his mama)

We haven't been to the doctor since 6 months but I'm guessing D weights about 20 pounds and is maybe around 29 inches?? We go back to the doctor next month so we will get the official stats then. He has gotten so long in the past month... all of the sudden he is long and skinny, with rolls placed in the perfect places :) I could eat him alive ...or maybe just nibble ha

He is still such a mama's boy and I just eat it up. He gives open mouth kisses and grabs my face. Probably one of the sweetest things EVER
He gives Daddy kisses every night before I go read to him its quite precious and makes Daddy smile

He is now full on crawling.. let the baby proofing begin!

and trying his hardest to walk... please no!!

Some of Mr. Davis's Stats

*Size three diapers
*Wears 12 month clothes, mostly for length
*STILL waking up at night
*eats 3 meals a day and is starting to get more table food than pureed food
*still not a fan of the sippy cup, just chews on it
*Nurses every three to four hours and takes a BM bottle when he is a daycare
*Still not handling formula well at all, which is fine as long as I pump enough!
*takes two good naps a day.. one in the morning around 9:30 - 10 and then one in the afternoon around 2. He takes a short snooze on the drive home everyday too
*Crawling every where
*pulling up and standing
*gives the best sugar!
*We are pretty sure we heard him say "hank" the other day.. he pronounced it "ank" He absolutely LOVES Hank so it would not surprise me at all. Anytime Hank comes near him he squeals and starts laughing, I'm sure they will be best buds as Davis gets older.

We could not be more pleased with the way the dogs have handled Davis. Bella takes the more stand offish but protective roll and hank just runs circles around him. Neither one has ever showed any kind of aggression or weird behavior towards him, which is a HUGE relief. You can tell they both love him and he just adores them too. Every little boy should have a dog :)

I feel like I'm forgetting something??

Oh yeah! I entered Davis in the pottery barn baby of the month contest on FB... If you could please go to PB kids fan site on FB and go to contestants. He will be in a blue bucket with a big ole' smile on his face (maybe page 13??) :) Thank you so much!! xoxo
